About Baptism by Immersion

We believe that scriptural baptism must be: (1) by being completely immersed under the water and (2) after salvation.  Jesus was immersed and all baptisms in the New Testament were by immersion.  These two facts sets the standard for baptism today.  Baptism has no saving power but is the first act of obedience symbolizing (1) the believer's faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, (2) the believer's death to sin and resurrection to walk anew in Christ (3) the Christian's belief that he will die, be buried, and that Jesus will resurrect him from the dead.
